Jonathan has summarized my efforts correctly.  My main focus has been
to fix the tests under mono/tests.  I have not attemped to run any
other tests but I was thinking about running the mscorlib tests next.

Given the tentative release schedule from Miguel and the rate problems
are being addressed we will not be done with the x64 port at the
branch (July 14.)  I have not spoke with anyone else on the team about
if work will be allowed to continue in the branch for the 2.0 release.
